Corvette C8 Reveal is tonight at 10:30EST

The new C8 Stingray will be revealed this evening at 10:30EST on Chevy's website. The event will be live streamed.

https://www.chevrolet.com/upcoming-v...ation-corvette

There have been tons of renders, speculation etc so like it or hate it, it will be nice to see what Chevy has put together.

I'm not a fan of the exhaust tips, the tail lights likely look better in person with some dimension. What I am excited about is that aggressive rear fender (at least from this angle).

i grow weary of the iPad screwed to the dash look of many new cars. I guess its too hard to properly integrate it in the dash.

Screens get bigger, dash needs to get higher. Can't or would go too high so the iPad look was born. None of it will age well and replacement costs should be fun.

That is an impressive line of switches and dongles lined up there.

Not that I would own one, but would be fun pretending I am in a damn 747 with switches everywhere.

I agree that the rear looks like the camaro. I'm not crazy about the interior layout. The center console looks too bulky. Overall I like the looks of the car and would love to take it for a test drive. I'd give it a thumbs up.

yawn, not a corvette, not going to be reliable and cheap to maintain or easy to work on yourself. should have been strictly a cadillac xlr and priced higher. All the fanbois will buy first model years and the hype will die off. no dealer will stock a $60k base model, the base model doesnt do 0-60 in 3 seconds (add 15k$ for the Z51 for that). AND NO MANUAL TRANS>!??!

Where did you read the Z51 package will cost $15k? The Z51 package on the current car costs about $5k and seems to include the same features as the Z51 package for the upcoming car.

Yeah I hope not. I'm sure prices are going up on option packages to keep base price low, but that's a huge jump.

I feel like I need to see it in person to really appreciate what it is. Right now, its cool with some quirks but seeing and feeling it in person helps with my perspective.

Can't wait to see a road legal version of this (Future Z06?). The wing is obviously for pure race car but that wide body style is VERY appealing.
